Under Phase 3, it does not mention that a tile needs to be traced back to a players base for it to be within an Area of Control, although the diagrams only show this to be the case. Is it required? Also, if a wall is built, does any new route also need to be connect through a non-blocked connection to a players base?
In Phase 3, players check the ownership of tiles. A tile is yours is more near to your base than the base of the other player.
To check that you have to find "an existing route" from the tile to the base (wall stop the route). If a route not exists you cannot control the tile.
